In science we know that models are only as good as the data we put into them. So just how far would researchers at the University of Chile go to learn more about how dinosaurs may have walked? Researchers certainly can’t study living dinosaurs. To do so they need to turn to their nearest living ancestors…. the chicken. We might not know why the chicken crossed the road, but we know how it would strut across the road with a dinosaur tail.
Again, models are only as good as the data that you put into them. To get that data, sometimes you have to put some plungers on some chicken butts and watch them strut around. It’s all the name of science.
